Growing concerns regarding workers’ safety and the extensive adoption of biodegradable and recyclable materials may elevate the PPE market growth.

Cummins and DuPont Collaborated to Enhance Brand Image

Cummins and DuPont entered into a collaboration in April 2020 to aid the lack of medical equipment during the pandemic. This development may enable the company to utilize DuPont's Hybrid Membrane Technology (HMT) in lube, fuel, and dirt filtration. This strategy may enable the company to boost its brand image worldwide.

Supply Chain Disruptions to Impede Market Progress

This market is likely to be negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic due to disruptions in the supply chain. Increasing COVID-19 infections led to restrictions on transport, manufacturing, and travel. Moreover, import bans and trade restrictions are expected to create stock and raw material shortages. Also, lack of medical equipment may hinder the market’s progress. However, the adoption of part-time shifts, automated production techniques, and reduced capacities may enhance the market progress during the pandemic.
